Plugin request - "Google Website Optimizer" for testing themes and layouts (6 posts)

    Hi there.

    I would like to see a plugin that will combine "Google Website Optimizer" (see: http://tinyurl.com/55m4k8) with testing wordpress themes and various widgets combinations.

    Up until now I have only found a year old plugin on the subject (see: http://websiteoptimizer.contentrobot.com/) that enabled using G-W-O with testing content variations.

    My request is for a plugin that will (easily) allow us to test conversions (whether of subscribers, comments, ads or what not) for different themes and different sorting of sidebar widgets within them.
    (so for example, we will be able to test if the subscribe widget should be above or bellow the "latest posts". and if it is better to have two or three columns themes, for our blog purposes - and so on)

    Does any one thinks he is up to this task ?

    Hi talgalili, I too have been looking for an optimizer plugin for WordPress. I found 2 in total one was called 'google website optimizer for WordPress'. This one messed up the formatting on my WordPress 2.6 site so i had to uninstall it. However the 2nd was called 'Easy Google Optimizer' plugin and you can find it here:


    Unfortunately i only just setting it up so i can't really comment on it but i'll let you know how I get on.

    There doesn't seem to be a plugin that allows you to split test two themes. However, there is this service that will help you:

    If you want to get contentrobot's plugin to work with your theme, open google-website-optimizer-for-wordpress.php in a text editor and change every occurance of echo to return.
